    10 Year Anniversary

    We are absolutely grateful to Ramsey Farms for all the work they put in to help us celebrate our 10 year Anniversary.

    Starting off, the Pavillion is extravagant and more beautiful than we imagined. IDEAL for a Country Couple! They had everything set up so that all we had to do was bring our decorations. The food was so good, and refreshing to have the catering done for us so that we didn't have to fret over it.
    The Manager and her help are very friendly and so easy to get along with. My daughter even got to make a new friend who has the purest heart I have ever seen. He entertained my kids all night, and it's a memory my daughter will always cherish. He even joined in with my kids to help put my wedding decor away for me. As the evening progressed, we got to open the doors and breathe in the beauty of what a country life is all about. You can't buy such beauty that comes naturally with this place. Speaking of money, the price is VERY reasonable for everything we had done, whereas most places would charge an arm and a leg. If I could give 10 stars, I would. I can't express enough how blessed I felt yesterday, enjoying such a divine place. If you leave this place unhappy when your done, check yourself in the mirror. Because they go such lengths for a fee you can't get anywhere else. I had to laugh when I was asked if a lady could bring her 3 year old in. We said the more the merrier, because we believe in being welcoming with a smile, and it was a family function where even my kids were still running and playing. The only complaint I have is not being able to live their myself. 🤣 To take something generations old with history and depth. And allow strangers in to enjoy it.. Is truly a blessing. My family was beyond impressed, and I have a strong feeling we will all be back! Thankyou so much for making my Anniversary, an Anniversary I will always cherish. My heart melted with absolute bliss. Thankyou again!!!!!!
